Is this a "soft" corner or a solid corner?
Soft corners can mess with the math involved in determining where light falls.

This is problem I have seen before on some UE demo Content Example, this scene with palace on ocean, same as your problem in few darker corners. And in many other games it happens too.
Back to answer, you should add Box Reflection Capture to this place. Maybe this box should cover whole room or just this corner, it need tests. Also, Box Reflection Capture settings must fits room size, because if will be bigger - default is 1000x1000x400 - it will be gather reflections from out of this room.
This can be pain anyway, but in my opinion this is worth for realistic effect. If still problem, even after adding Box Reflection Capture (or in some cases Sphere Reflection Capture) you have few emergency solutions, used a lot in game design:
Have a fun and good luck
ps. Dark places with reflections creating always problem in any known engine, please correct me - I hope.
